that we do have a debt crisis. republicans in the age of obama have never wanted to mount a frontal, philosophical attack on social security and medicare because they're the two most popular things the american government provides. so instead of saying we want to cut and or eliminate social security and medicare because like rand we do not believe the government should be in the business of providing health care and or pensions and disability benefits to anyone, ever. instead, republicans have been saying we love medicare and we love social security but we simply can't afford those programs in their current form because of our debt crisis, because of our huge budget deficit, so reluctantly and bravely, we republicans propose significant cuts to medicare and social security, cuts that we republicans believe will make those programs more solvent and last longer. because remember, we republicans love medicare, just love it, and we love social security. we just can't afford them. dropping the budget crisis argument moved john boehner and president obama much closer than they have ever b
